Escaped for the day to @thehuntingtonlibrary + searching for butterflies, bees, birds, and all the botany that fills my heart with joy. I found this little critter nestled. Am I the only one who thanks wildlife when they leave? A genuine thank you for allowing me to be in your presence, humbled by the beauty here. Silent footsteps to not disturb anything ... #wherewewander#huntingtonlibrary#gardenlove#butterflygarden
What are you doing to move forward?
What are you doing to heal the wounds of the past?
The question against which you can weigh all of your actions is whether it moves you forward or whether it slides you back. How well do you apply your reasoning skills in thinking out your actions? Or do you just go on animal instinct? Do you remember to think of the impact of your actions on the greater good?
This is not as difficult as it might seem. Firstly, if you do not take care of yourself, you cannot be of any use to anyone else. Then, and only then, can you look to your immediate circle -- how do your actions impact them? Then you look to the larger community, as well as to future generations. But first, you make sure that you are healthy and recharged.
